Ignore the title and listen to the first 5:00 minutes; at least.

They have different names in different places, Ive heard some people refer to them as 'skunk apes' or the 'wood ape', I think that is mainly because they look somewhat like a gorilla (some of them do anyways).


I enjoyed the video, the guy seems to be a straight shooter, although, im not sure what he meant in the video about bigfoot being 'the tip of the iceberg'? Do you know?

IMO He is alluding to the idea that they are not an unknown primate.

I made it through the whole video. To me he seems like a very low rent version of a 80's horrible at their job infomercial host. You know the ones that came on at 3am only way worse.

90% of the video he could could have been talking about anything with the way he worded everything. Also he seems to be ON something with his constant movement. IMHO people like in the video is WHY it is hard to take the subject seriously.

I am a hard sell. I hang up on the telemarketers as soon as they open their mouths. I want to see scientific evidence and not just have somebody bad mouth me because I do not believe. We are long overdue for solid evidence that they exist.

Some of the people that claim to have regular contact with these things are no longer interested in disclosing proof of their existence anymore, Ive ran into a lot of these folks within the dogman world, if they feel you would disclose their 'hotspot' or go public with any pics they have, they will flat out ignore you.

I think we me it is the Teacher in me for why I stick around here. It makes a person wonder how long these disbelievers would last on the religion forum.

I know what I have seen and experienced and no one will change my mind. I don't like them coming around where I live.

But is it because they want to protect their hotspot or were they always lying? Here is a link to signs that one might be lying; it is about couples - but it could be anything: https://www.bustle.com/p/7-signs-you...-to-it-8354049. I like the number one and number seven on 'their way to spot a lie'. 1 is they get defensive and seven is that "they use phrases like "Trust me", "Honestly", and "Just to be honest..." sound like your partner is trying too hard, you might be right."

This is the problem with all of this 'non-evidence' presented as stories. We have to rely on somebody's word. Many times we do not even have a name or they have changed their name so we cannot verify their story.

Anybody that claims they see these things all the time is in an excellent position to collect evidence. But when we get nothing and over the years they continue to claim that they see these creatures all the time; then we get suspicious.

I feel the opposite way, I have read and heard so much about these things, I really want to see one, (one time would be good enough!), bigfoot or dogman, either one would be just fine!



Although I do understand why you would not want them coming around your property all the time.

Well, I have personally run across a number of people in the FB dogman and bigfoot groups, if you start sounding skeptical, they will just move on and ignore you, Ive had a couple really try to prove their sightings to me, one of these wrote me a freaking novel when I questioned his recording, but the large majority, they are not interested in proving anything to a skeptic, they will just ignore you.


This is actually very prevalent within the native american groups (when the topic is skinwalkers), NONE of them are interested in proving anything to a skeptic, Ive talked to a few of them, they could not care less if you or I believe them or not.


When people go out of their way NOT trying to prove something to you...well, imo, that makes them a whole lot more credible.
